John F. Kennedy Assassination Documents Released

The long-awaited release of classified documents pertaining to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy was dampened by the announcement that certain “sensitive” records would remain sealed pending further review. A senior administration official told reporters the sensitive documents will be held for an additional 180 days due to concerns from some intelligence agencies to determine whether they may affect national security.

"I have no choice -- today -- but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation's security," the president wrote in a memo released by the White House on Thursday evening ahead of the release. 

The president said he is ordering agencies to review “each and every one of those redactions” over the next 180 days. 

“At the end of that period, I will order the public disclosure of any information that the agencies cannot demonstrate meets the statutory standard for continued postponement of disclosure,” Trump wrote.
